Fire Fighting Procedures

If material on fire or involved in fire: Do not extinguish fire unless flow can be stopped. Do not apply water to point of leak in tank car or container. Use water in flooding quantities as fog. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. Apply water from as far a distance as possible. Use foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide.

Evacuation: If fire becomes uncontrollable or container is exposed to direct flame -- consider evacuation of one-third (1/3) mile radius.

Stop flow of gas before extinguishing fire. Approach fire from upwind to avoid hazardous vapors & toxic decomp products. Fight fire from protected location or maximum possible distance. Explosive decomp may occur under fire conditions. Use flooding quantities of water as spray. DO NOT use halogenated extinguishing agents. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool.
